Government disenfranchises the voters

October 19, 2011

This is a “Gangsta’ Government.” The Federal Communications Commission is pressing forward for its Nov. 20 implementation of “Net Neutrality,” despite the 74 congressional Democrats’ letter to the FCC Chairman and 37 Republican senators’ letter objecting in May of 2010.

The grandiose congressional “Super Committee” charged with naming budget cuts by Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving), to which the House and Senate may vote Yea or Nay, but not amend, was created — not by the Tea Party — but by a poor bargain of Speaker of the House John Boehner with President Obama and congressional Democrats. Nicely for the latter, it disenfranchises the majority of voters who voted in 2010 that Republicans would oversee the budget process. What were Boehner and Mitch McConnell thinking?

The “Affordable Care Act” (Obamacare), which was going to reduce everyone’s insurance premiums, is raising them instead, and putting insurers out of business (that was the idea!). Many will be shocked when their employers opt to pay a fine per employee, rather than support their health insurance, and employees find themselves in a Medicaid pool of insured.

    We can only hope in the next election the Tea Party Representatives who are destroying our country through the inability to negotiate will be voted out. It is hard to understand why these people support the rich and are sending the rest of us to the poor house.
